Speedy Fox and Friends Challenge - Love

This week's theme on the Speedy Fox and Friends challenge on the MFP Blog is LOVE.  Valentine's Day is right around the corner, so this was very appropriate.  My card for the challenge is a sneak peek at a new set from Mark's Finest Papers, a Heinrich Company, called  Love Script.


This is one of my new favorite techniques -- Triple Stamping.  I lined up the three white layers and stamped the script background over all three pieces of cardstock.    It didn't quite cover the entire bottom layer, so I stamped the flourish.  After matting with the red cardstock, I tied the red ribbon around the two smaller layers and added the butterflies.  It was a fairly simple card to construct.

If you'd like to play along with the Speedy Fox and Friends team, make a card depicting love and link it up at the end of the post on the Mark's Finest Papers blog.  You could win a free stamp set.  If you use MFP stamps, you get two chances.

Stamps:  Mark's Finest Papers - Love Script
Paper:  MFP Deep Scarlet, Grandma's Snow Covered Porch
Ink:  Memento Tuxedo Black
Accessories:  Ribbon, Cheery Lynn Designs Butterfly die, Pearls
